Re: STM32 USB support

Ethernet for the STM32?  I'd considered having a stab at a driver for
one of the SPI based Ethernet chips (either the Micrel or Microchip) but
just don't have the time right now.

I've just had a look at the code and it shouldn't be too hard.  The key
change is that in order to obtain a handle on the endpoint data
structures you need to wait for endpoint configuration to complete
(which the serial driver does anyway):

// Block the calling thread until the USB is configured.

  while (usbs_serial_state != USBS_STATE_CONFIGURED)

Then you can get a handle on the endpoint data structures by calling one
of the following functions (see the STM32 USB header).

cyg_usbs_cortexm_stm32_tx_endpoint (...)
cyg_usbs_cortexm_stm32_rx_endpoint (...)

This replaces the static way of doing it, where the following lines from
the USB serial driver specify the statically allocated endpoint data

extern usbs_tx_endpoint         CYGDAT_IO_USB_SLAVE_SERIAL_TX_EP;
extern usbs_rx_endpoint         CYGDAT_IO_USB_SLAVE_SERIAL_RX_EP;

And these are hooked directly into the following static data structure:

usbs_serial usbs_ser0 = {
    tx_ep:      TX_EP,
    rx_ep:      RX_EP,
    tx_result:  0,
    rx_result:  0,

Everything else looks fine.  The STM32 driver should automatically parse
the device descriptors so that it looks like the 'standard' serial
device.  If you don't have any luck with it I might have time to play
with it at the weekend.
